Woestijnvis

Woestijnvis ("Desert Fish") is an independent Flemish television production company.

History

The name of the company refers to a famous mistake of a quiz-candidate in the Flemish version of Wheel of Fortune: the remaining letters were W . . ST . . NV . S and somebody answered "WOESTIJNVIS" ("Desert Fish"), the correct answer was "WOESTIJNVOS" ("Desert Fox"). The company was founded in 1997 by Jan Huyse, Wouter Vandenhaute and Erik Watté in close collaboration with Mark Uytterhoeven. The company rose to fame with its series "The Mole", variants of which were recorded and broadcast in various countries.
